Under the weather

I've had a dodgy stomach for the past week and a half, which seems to come and go as it pleases. I don't think it was due to the barbecue as no-one else has said anything when I've asked them. I've not eaten anything out of the ordinary! At the moment it's coupled with feeling very tired as Nicky hasn't been sleeping well over the last few nights. Our holiday can't come soon enough!

I played squash last night - we've decided to stop playing tennis as it's getting too dark in the evenings now, and we definitely made the right choice last night as it rained quite heavily. It's been about 10 years since I last played squash but we got back into it quite quickly. I beat James 4-1 but lost out to Will 3-2 - I was 2-1 up but I tired towards the end.


We had a barbecue at ours this weekend which was fairly successful, thankfully the rain held off for most of the day and apart from a small burn on my little finger I survived cooking unscathed! The new barbecue seems pretty decent, good job too after it took me an hour and a half to put together (made a mistake which took 20 minutes to undo and redo, grrrr).

Apart from that, the 'major' news is that Nicky is now sleeping in his own room which we've finally finished decorating. He's been in there since last Thursday and so far it seems to be going really well!

More teeth, more children

Last week was a very long week. Nicky had his bottom two pre-molars coming through, which meant we had three sleepless nights. Thankfully he seems much more comfortable now, and we're even getting some nights where he sleeps right through which is something we're not going to be able to get used to...

Yes, last Tuesday we went for a scan at the hospital to confirm that Anna is pregnant again!We've known for a few weeks but wanted to wait until the scan to announce it a bit more publicly. Here are the scan pictures:

The due date is mid-February, so if it's anything like Nicky it will be March...


Finally, our flat has been sold! Hopefully the cheque will be arriving today or tomorrow so I can pay off some debts. It's a huge load off my mind, and I'm looking forward to shredding a whole load of paperwork.

Further to my previous blog entry, I decided to go for the 'normal' Manics album with signature - it's unlikely I'd ever listen to the second CD more than once anyway, I certainly didn't with Journal For Plague Lovers. Plus it's not like limited edition CDs are worth anything any more - I remember the days of paying a fortune for rare limited editions of things, but now they're hardly worth any more than the normal editions so not really worth the extra money.

Now the main thing I'm thinking about is writing a letter to my Grandad. I'd like to get something written by the end of the week, I've thought a lot about what I want to write but it's just about finding time to commit it to paper. Time isn't something I have a lot…
